M2: Bringing Space Harrier To 3DS Was "Almost Impossible", But It's "The Definitive Version"

Who would have thought porting old arcade games could be this hard?

This week the 3DS eShop will finally be blessed with 3D classics from SEGA — including arcade classic Space Harrier — but getting these titles to run as perfectly as they do on 3DS was no easy task, as the developers have explained in a recent interview. Naoki Horii,...

Review: Hands On! Tangrams (DSiWare)

Hands On! Tangrams (DSiWare)

All hands on deck?

Hands On! Tangrams, originally a DS retail game, is now a DSiWare title thanks to developer Island Officials; it's a simple, bare bones affair that is fun while it lasts, but has very little replay value and may prove too simple for more experienced gamers. Still, with the low entry price, there are worse puzzle games with which...

Review: Senran Kagura Burst (3DS eShop)

Senran Kagura Burst (3DS eShop)

Fit to Burst

Fresh from the friendly fields of Rune Factory 4, XSEED returns with another, decidedly more deadly offering from the Land of the Rising Sun in Senran Kagura Burst. Taking its gameplay inspiration from classic side-scrolling beat-'em-ups, and its over-the-top, undergarment-filled style from anime and manga, this is a fun, frenzied...

Christmas Wonderland 3 (3DS eShop)

Another name on the naughty list

It was a cold night, and the gentle snow was just beginning to fall. All throughout Nintendo Life HQ there was evidence of good cheer. After all, Christmas was coming! Martin and Morgan were decorating the tree, newcomer Liam was introducing the team to his home-made eggnog, and Ron was entertaining the children by...

SteamWorld Dig Coming to PC, But Follow-Up Will Still Arrive "Day One" on 3DS

"Nintendo has treated us like royalty"

SteamWorld Dig is a 3DS eShop title that's undoubtedly caused a stir among Nintendo Download gamers, while also receiving bounteous praise throughout its reviews. The work of Image & Form, it's been a title that's retained solid momentum after launch due to positive word of mouth, while Nintendo gave it...

Review: World Conqueror 3D (3DS eShop)

World Conqueror 3D (3DS eShop)

Tanks, but no tanks

Field Marshal Archibald Percival Wavell of the British Army once said that “war is a muddle” and, quite frankly, we couldn’t agree with him more. The conflict he described was that of World War II; that's the very same that World Conqueror 3D strives to simulate, with messy results. No more than an overcomplicated clone of...

Review: Secret Mysteries in New York (3DS eShop)

Secret Mysteries in New York (3DS eShop)

Find every object, for great justice

There's a real puzzle afoot in Secret Mysteries in New York, and it has to do with the game's title itself. No, it's not our attempt to figure out whether or not the phrase "secret mysteries" qualifies as redundant; it's why the developers bothered to rename Secret Mysteries in London for its eShop release. The...

KORG M01D Creator Nobuyoshi Sano Talks About Making Sweet Music On The 3DS eShop

Review: KORG M01D (3DS eShop)

KORG M01D (3DS eShop)

Blast from the past

3DS has amassed a curiously robust library of music creation software for a chunk of hardware built to play video games. The KORG brand in particular has made itself comfy on Nintendo's handhelds in the past few years, starting with an emulation of the classic MS-10 synth in KORG DS-10, and now the M1 gets the software treatment...

Review: Word Wizard 3D (3DS eShop)

Word Wizard 3D (3DS eShop)

Dark wizard

Word games can be fun, addictive brain teasers, but they can also be tedious, unintuitive and shallow. Word Wizard 3D unfortunately falls squarely into the latter category. Though there are plenty of game modes, and none are fundamentally broken, there's nothing in Word Wizard 3D that justifies its purchase over various alternatives that...

Review: City Connection (3DS eShop / NES)

City Connection (3DS eShop / NES)

Crash and burn

Originally released as an arcade game, City Connection puts you in the shoes of a man who wants to travel all over the world in order to paint its roads white, thus proving that he's travelled across the globe. Sounds like vandalism to us, but that's the '80s for you! Of course, this would be rather difficult to accomplish on foot, so...

Review: 4 Elements (3DS eShop)

4 Elements (3DS eShop)

Not a perfect storm

Engine Software's 4 Elements is a fun match-3 puzzler weighed down by unnecessary seek-and-find sequences and occasionally frustrating level design. Originally a PC game, 4 Elements' generic fantasy presentation hides an addictive game that will appeal to fans of Bejeweled and other "casual" puzzle titles. There's nothing wrong...
